Replacing onboard graphics chipset

What are the possible problems with replacing an onboard graphics chipset (faulty port) with a graphics card?

A Medion Desktop E4120 Win7, with onboard Intel G41 Express chipset. Chipset port intermittently faulty and thereby loses screen connection.

Full detailed instruction on fitting a graphics card required, Anyone?

I have a Foxconn mobo and it's based on AMD drivers. Fitting an Nvidia card resulted in a blank screen. Onboard gpu chip disabled by default by physically installing a GPU card. Had to remove the card, install Nvidia drivers, reinstall the card and it worked ok. As it is an Intel mobo, just physically installing an Nvidia card, connecting the monitor to it, might result in Windows generic drivers kicking in and you will have, at least, a display so that you can install the drivers.
